I have known Manuel Barba for many years. He has always been a gifted and zealous advocate for his clients and we often discussed DUI defense tactics. In April of 2010, I attended an SFST Student Course through La Pier & Associates and discovered that my good friend Mr. Barba was one of the Instructors. It was a position that suited him well, as Mr. Barba is an incredible teacher; however, what really impressed me was his ability to conduct a more thorough cross-examination of officers with the SFST training he had received, so much so that it encouraged me to attend the SFST Instructor Course this past May. Mr. Barba is truly one of Southern California's premier DUI attorney's and I would highly recommend him as your DUI defense attorney if you are charged with DUI in the Riverside/San Bernardino area.
